Pilates: Thera Band Arms – Women’s Fitness

Pilates: Thera Band Arms – part of the women’s fitness video series by GeoBeats. Hi, I am Charlotte and this is Alice and we are here at Streamline Pilates studio in Brooklyn Heights, NY. We are going show you a series that you can use the Thera Band to strengthen you arm and your shoulder joint. Sitting on a ball, or sitting anywhere actually, your feet are about hip distance apart, your knees are aligned with your hips and your feet, and let’s just take your hands on either ends of the Thera Band and walk your hand in to accumulate the Thera Band in your hands. You want to have about 10 inches or a foots distance apart when you are finished, and then take a minute and just hug your elbows right into your ribs, there going to stay there glued the whole time and then for a minute just bring those ribs together, drawing them into the body, drawing them into the back of your body. Navel back towards your spine, your sitting up tall, your lifting up out of your hips, and staying in this position just five or ten times. Rotate that right arm out to the side keeping your wrist as straight as you can, you dont want to bend your wrist in any direction. Your elbow is glued to your ribs. And to the other side, 5 or 10. Nicely done. And then let’s do 5 or 10 with both arms. Great. And now let’s bring your arms out in front, let a little more distance apart. Palms are facing down, your shoulders are down along your back, your ribs are buttoned together, your navel is still back
